Project:

Aspect Landscape Planning Ltd were instructed to prepare a Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment and assist in the landscape design and masterplanning for a proposed re-development at the former RAF Daws Hill, High Wycombe. The scheme includes 433 new homes, a village centre and the provision of a site for a new primary school.  

The site is located on the south east urban edge of High Wycombe, approximately 1.5km south of the town centre, set within a framework of existing mature trees. The site is currently developed, having previously accommodated residential and educational buildings associated with the former RAF base.

The landscape proposals seek to provide over 580 replacement trees across the site as mitigation for those that would be lost as part of the proposals. Public open space will be developed to allow an appreciation of the existing treescape and create immediate, established parkland.
